- Langston Hughes

About this Quote

In this quote, Langston Hughes prompts us to keep our dreams, as they are important for a satisfying life. He compares a life without dreams to a bird with a broken wing, unable to soar and reach its full capacity. Just as a bird requires its wings to fly, we require our dreams to direct us and give us instructions. Without them, we are lost and not able to reach our real capacity. Hughes advises us that our dreams are what give us hope, motivation, and function in life. So, we should hold fast to them and never ever let go, for they are the key to a significant and fulfilling presence.
